VenueNational Cricket Stadium, St George's, Grenada
The West Indian squad is well charged for the shorter version of the game as majority of their players were involved in the recently concluded Caribbean Premier League, 2014. The unpredictable Bangladesh side will do their best to surprise the hosts but the visitors will have to perform well in all departments of the game. The first One Day International will begin on 20th of August and both teams will be eager to take a lead which can boost the morale of the winning side.
Lendl Simmons, Chris Gayle, Darren Bravo and Dwayne Bravo batted excellently in the CPL 2014 and the all-round performance of Kemar Roach will be handy. Ravi Rampaul grabbed highest wickets in the event while Jason Holder, Nikita Miller and Sunil Narine will form a match winning bowling combination.
The batting of Bangladesh will revolve around Tamim Iqbal, Anamul Haque, Imrul Kayes, Mushfiqur Rahim and Nasir Hossain whereas Al-Amin Hossain, Rubel Hossain, Abdur Razzak and Mashrafe Mortaza form a balanced bowling attack.
